This week, the Disney Parks Blog announced the opening of a new Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios park in Orlando’s Walt Disney World.

 

“The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow” will feature the story of everyone’s favorite ne’er-do-well buccaneer Jack Sparrow, putting guests seemingly right on decks.
 

From the Blog:
 

According to Jason Roberts, show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, “This is going to be an immersive experience. We’ll really delve into the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and put our guests in the middle of it all in new and exciting ways. Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering, but we’re always looking at new ways to tell the story that our guests have never seen before. In this attraction, we’ll let you walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow. It’s not ‘the making of,’ not ‘behind the scenes’ … it is really a first-person experience. We worked with the archives as well as the filmmakers while they were shooting the last movie. And as a fan, I just loved sitting through those films again and again, going through all the details and leveraging them for this new experience. It’s really been a blast.”

 

According to sources, this new experience will be housed in the “Soundstage 4″ building which also was the home to the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” attraction, “Journey to Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and set pieces from the “The Haunted Mansion” and “101 Dalmations” films.
 

The opening date of this amazing experience will be announced later this year.  Keep To The Code will be there to keep you informed!

Slow But Steady Course For OST - June 14, 2011 by The Crew


Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides lost some wind this past weekend, falling to #5 in the box-office totals. The fourth installment in Disney’s and Jerry Bruckheimer’s high-seas franchise came in at $10.9 millon and did out do “Bridesmaids”. The film also sailed around the $200 million domestic horn on Friday June 10th.
 
The film also surpassed the previous installment “At World’s End” to be the highest grossing film in the series at $678 million internationally.
 
We’re pretty sure this showing has a few more weeks on its sea legs before it leaves the top ten. Our bet is that it cracks $900 million world-wide before it’s run is over.

“On Stranger Tides” Keeps On Sailing! - June 6, 2011 by The Crew

For the third weekend in a row, the latest installment of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” films struck box-office gold, maintaining it’s Number 1 spot in the ranks! The film pulled in an estimated $69.4 million- down from last weekend’s numbers- but still a strong showing. It also beat out it’s closest rival “X-Men: First Class” by over $5 million.

 
The Worldwide numbers have risen to over $600 million as well, easily beating “Curse of the Black Pearl” and looking well on its way to surpassing both “Dead Man’s Chest” and “At World’s End”. Still, some are taking the film’s somewhat disappointing $190.2 million domestic showing to mean that U.S. filmgoers are tiring of extravagant 3D productions and prices.

 
In total, OST’s full bounty stands at $790.7 millon, so far the biggest film of the summer season. Anyone willing to lay down a bet on how much the finally haul will be?
